Our M3EWB Network aims to (1) provide resources that assist in defining and measuring EWB across the life course and (2) engage interdisciplinary research that investigates the mechanisms through which mind-body interventions (e.g., yoga, deep breathing) promote EWB.


Defining Emotional Well-Being (EWB)

Emotional well-being (EWB) is a multi-dimensional composite that encompasses how positive an individual feels generally and about life overall. It has both experiential features, such as the emotional quality of everyday experiences, and reflective features, such as judgments about life satisfaction, sense of meaning, and ability to pursue goals that can include and extend beyond the self. These features occur in the context of culture, life circumstances, resources, and life course.

We expect that this definition may change over time, so please stay tuned for more. If you have feedback, please let us know here.
